Stella for Staff programme

The professional mobility programme for services staff of the Compostela Group of Universities, Stella for Staff, fosters intercontinental exchanges for the workforce of the CGU and CONAHEC member universities. A connection to learn how they work in the different departments of the universities participating in the programme and to live a multicultural experience, through short stays in other higher education institutions from our network and CONAHEC.

In 2002, the programme was born as an initiative to offer administrative staff the same opportunities available to students and teaching staff at that time. Since its launch, more than 400 administrative staff from the CGU and CONAHEC networks have participated in the professional exchanges.

Once a year, our network disseminates a call for applications for grants and mobility under the Stella for Staff programme. Only services staff from the CGU member universities can apply and receive a grant.

                                                                  In these videos, service staff from the member universities of the Compostela Group of Universities share their experiences in our network’s Stella for Staff programme. These people are the best ambassadors of the programme, as they can testify to the personal and professional enrichment that their intercontinental experience has brought them.
